Re: gl1800 not starting no spark

If you have not completed this job yet. Yes you can solder and heat shrink. A new wire harness could be next to impossible.

Re: Air filter inspection

It was a chicken wire type with smaller holes but bigger then a screen.

Re: Air filter inspection

I run oem as I believe most of us do. With oem you still won't have to check or clean or replace until 40k to 50k miles as long as no mice have gotten in there. And with that when you do check your filter put a screen over the intake runners.

Re: cell phone

Do you have the auxiliary cable in the left pocket? Hook you phone in that and use the auxiliary button on the radio and a 5 pin din cable from helmet to bike.

WingAdmin do you have any experience with superbright LED for DRL with turn signals in the front and run and brake lights in the rear?

Re: LED headlight bulbs

I am also looking at LED headlights. But not sure on the quality of beam down the road

I've installed LED fog lights but that's more to be seen and will be installing LED auxiliary lights shortly.

For the rear I'm looking at superbright LED bulbs. They look the same as cyclemax.

Re: Regular or Premium

I mostly use 87 with and occasional 87-89 Efree. I also am starting to use with every other fuel fill up is the stable marine fuel additive. I used it before on my 1500. Started using it again. I have also used in the past is seafoam and I was very happy with that.

Re: Jerky shift fix

This is an old post but may still be relevant today. I have a 07 that has a surge problem at idle when the bike is warm. A buddy has an 08 with a stumble problem when taking off from a stop when the bike is warm.

Have other guys used this and your thoughts on it.

Re: Progressive suspension upgrades

You may also be able to tell if you have a friends 1800 with known change or not by the ride height. A stock ride height will most likely ride low in the suspension.

I do realize this post is almost a year old however I have a question? I just got a New 2me 2008 Navi ABS with 35,000 miles... How can I check to find if any upgrades have been done to the suspension?
You'll have to take the front springs out to tell. And change the oil while your at it.

Re: Air filter inspection

And remember when you are in there to change the filter, put a screen over the inlet of the air ducts to prevent any critters entering into the filter and making a home.

Re: FOBO Tire monitoring

I use the tiregard from cyclemax. Its larger then the fob style so I can read it easier and I didn't want the fobo because of the phone app use.

Re: Quick way to adjust the cruiser control

I need to do this also. It's not hard just time consuming. The adjuster is under the top shelter, under the radio.
